Reliable, Secure & Efficient File Server Migrations
The default setting of a "Data Migration" job will preserve the
inheritance of the specified source folder(s) on the target. If the
source folder(s) had inheritance enabled, the copied target folder(s)
will inherit NTFS permissions from their corresponding parent folders.
Optionally disable or enable inheritance for the target folder(s) in the
copy job's settings to configure inheritance independently from the
current inheritance settings of the specified source folder(s).
If disabling inheritance in your copy job settings you can additionally
convert any access control entries (ACEs) that were inherited from
parent folders of the specified source folder(s) into explicit (not
inherited) access control entries on the target.
The copy engine uses multi-threading for maximum performance and to saturate the network connection. You can adjust the number of threads in your copy job's settings.
Asynchronous I/O ensures that disk channels of RAID volumes are fully used by performing multiple read and write operations in parallel.
Optionally limit the bandwidth used by the data transfer, for example if performing a pre-cut-over copy, while users are still working.
Hash Validation of Copied Data
CopyRight2 migrates the compression and encryption attributes by default. If files are encrypted, the program does not need to decrypt the data. User accounts, with the corresponding key, will be able to access their data after the migration the same way they did before the migration took place.
CopyRight2 supports file and folder names of up to 255 and paths of up to 32,768 characters. Those are the technical limits imposed by Windows®. That means that running into some deep paths will not stop your migration from succeeding.
CopyRight2 migrates the creation time, the last modification time and the last time accessed time stamps of files and folders.
CopyRight2 migrates NTFS reparse points, sometimes referred to as junction points or symbolic links. You can control separately how to treat reparse points pointing outside or to the inside of folders specified as your source. If a reparse point, is referring to a folder that is part of the data migration job, it can update the location the reparse point points to accordingly.
CopyRight2 can optionally migrate NTFS hardlinks. Hardlinks are for example used by Windows WinSxS folder to store the same DLLs under different names and paths.
CopyRight2 supports archiving solutions such as Veritas Enterprise Vault or Tivoli Storage Manager. Those archiving solutions usually replace files, based on rules that haven't been used for a specified time and replace them with reparse points that allows to transparently retrieve the data if needed from archive storage.
Background Execution of Scheduled Jobs
Configure jobs to run scheduled at a specified interval and in the background when no one is logged on to the system.
Email Notifications and Event Log Reporting
Jobs can optionally send out notifications by email or report to the Windows® event log upon success or failure.
Use CopyRight2's template based rollout planning feature to centrally control and monitor larger scale migrations.
Prefix/Suffix for Account Names
You can define a prefix or suffix per object type to prevent naming conflicts among user and group names. If a source group is for example called "Accounting" and you define a prefix "S01_" the resulting migrated group will be called "S01_Accounting".
Prefix/Suffix for Share Names
Just like the ability to define a prefix or a suffix for account names you can define one for file shares as well to generate unique file share names. If a file share on the source system is called "Marketing" and you define a prefix "S01_" the migrated file share will be called "S01_Marketing" on the target.
Migrate local and domain accounts including all properties and attributes between source and target systems. The Password Migration Add-On additionally allows the migration of user passwords.
Optionally switch from an AGLP RBAC model (Account Global -> server Local group -> Permission) to AGDLP (Account Global -> Domain Local group -> Permissions) by migrating server local accounts automatically to the domain.
Migrate your source system configured for workgroup mode to a target system that is configured as a domain member for increased security and easier management.
Easily migrate between systems that are members in different domains.
Simply migrate accounts during the data migration. CopyRight2 will migrate all accounts that are either directly or indirectly referenced in permissions.
Optionally migrate in a two step approach. Migrate accounts first with a "User and Group Migration" job, followed by a "Data Migration" job copying data and permissions.
The intuitive graphical user interface enables you to instantly create a copy job for a file server migration, by simply selecting the source and destination folders or entire drives. Or define a computer or Active Directory scan job to gather live data for planning purposes in the format of your choice (Text, Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server). All jobs created with the GUI can be run unattended and at a chosen date and time or specified interval by relying on its integrated scheduling abilities.
CopyRight2 is certified for Windows® 2000 Server up to Windows® 2019 and supports the new Windows® 2022 version.
It supports cluster services and will create cluster file share resources if migrating to a Windows® cluster.
CopyRight2 supports NetApp®, EMC®, Hitachi®, Synology®, ReadyNAS®, TrueNAS® and other Linux Samba based solutions as source and target of your storage migration.
Our all-time favorite feature is the real-time synchronization, which drew us to purchase the product.
The migration, which was scheduled to take 5 days and would certainly have required the cooperation of several departments, was completed by a system administrator within one day.
CopyRight2 made the migration of our environment to a new remote server a breeze. It was able to copy the local users including passwords and folders with security settings intact.
CopyRight2 was exactly the solution we needed to migrate 30,000+ user accounts between domains.
Our legacy IIS FTP server migration would not have been possible without the Copyright2 application due to a number of FTP accounts and saved credentials stored on the legacy system. The Copyright2 app made this migration possible with no impact to our business.
The migration of local user’s passwords and data folders NTFS permissions were the features I liked the most.
We discovered a lot of functionality in one tool, as well as a long-standing company that regularly updates all of its software products and proved never failed migrations with their existing customers.
Without CopyRight2, we would have had to create about 1000 new customers and hand them out their passwords.
It couldn’t have been simpler and saved us days of work with almost zero downtime.
We couldn’t use ADMT because of a domain name collision with the source domain’s alternate UPN suffix, so CopyRight2 was the perfect tool to handle the migration of accounts - complete with account passwords – while allowing for easy mapping of account attributes.
Testing with the 30-days trial version of CopyRight2 that Sys-Manage offers to potential customers, in order to know the capabilities and the functionality of the product, convinced me to buy the product.
This purchase impacted our clustered file server migration planning, driving us to devise the most efficient and effective strategy by utilizing CopyRight2.
One advantage is clearly the operation. The software is child's play to use thanks to the Microsoft-inspired design philosophy. Anyone who has ever used an Office series product will have no problems using the program.
Using CopyRight2 has contributed the most to our business, during the systemic upgrade of different SFTP servers.
We were thinking to use the traditional robocopy tool for our file server migration, but it was too complicated to manage the copy jobs and correct the failed jobs.
The supposedly "high" cost of the investment has already paid for itself within half a day.
Investing in the product allowed us to experience a faster and easier implementation of the systemic upgrade of our servers with full productivity and continuous changes.
The ultimate customer service support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which was a fantastic experience.
Support was able to answer my questions to my satisfaction within a short period of time.
Sys-Manage support was incredible too. They were patient and responded nearly immediately when I needed help.
Support was impressively responsive and helpful when evaluating the product and performing test migrations in our lab environment prior to the big migration event. CopyRight2 made the whole migration and end user experience substantially smoother.
Support was maybe the most important thing in our experience using the product. They had answers for all of our technical questions or problems that we had faced.
As a consequence, we were able to finish the migration with no disruptions to the applications or users. We believe it was worthwhile to invest in CopyRight2.
The facility of migrating all that you want (Users, Passwords, Permissions) without worrying about anything surprised me the most.
I would immediately recommend this program to any administrator facing the same problems. Not only can it do a lot, it can even do it comfortably. No command line interface needed, requiring long reading. Instead a clear GUI, where problems and tasks can be solved directly without any real prior knowledge.
Would I recommend the product? Absolutely yes!!! The most important for the customer, beside the facility and reliability of the product, is the immediate after sales technical support of the product.
